What is a Allergic Reaction?

Sometimes your body can mistakenly identify a harmless substance, such as pollen, as a threat. It produces antibodies to try to try to fight off the threat, and it is these antibodies that produce side effects. Depending on the allergen, the side effects will differ. Side effects can include sneezing, swollen eyes, itchy skin and a runny nose.

Although it is possible to have an allergic reaction to almost any substance, there are a few common allergies that many people suffer from:

  • Dust Mites
  • Pollen
  • Molds
  • Pets

How to test Allergies?

Skin Prick Testing

Skin prick testing is the most common allergy test performed in an allergy clinic by specially trained staff. It is a simple, safe and quick test, providing results within 15-20 minutes. This will enable you to receive a diagnosis and management plan at your appointment. These tests can be carried out on all age groups, including babies.

It is our goal at Prana Health to help you to have the best outcome possible and we are happy to help in your care
